Car crashes are the leading cause of accidental child death in the United States. Each year, an estimated 2,000 children suffer fatal injuries in auto accidents and another 250,000 sustain injuries.
Children are particularly susceptible to catastrophic injury when involved in a pedestrian accident or bicycle accident, as there is none of the protection offered by a vehicle. Furthermore, they are at a higher risk for these types of accidents due to their small size and the amount of time they spend playing. Negligent, reckless and drunk drivers are often responsible for child injury accidents of this type.
Although children have a unique ability to quickly recover from many types of injuries, this is not always the case with serious injuries. A spinal cord injury could result in the child being paralyzed for the rest of his or her life; he or she could develop learning or developmental disabilities due to brain trauma; psychological damage and social issues are often the result of disfiguring burns or amputations. It is important that you do not underestimate the severity of your child’s injury or the amount of work and finances it will take to properly care for his or her medical problems.
Parents are not always able to protect their children from harm, but they can help defend their children’s rights and futures by pursuing just compensation for the damages to their child and family.
